My School Year...in GIFs!

SEPTEMBER

         
...when I am confident with fresh ideas and just can't WAIT to meet my new class!

OCTOBER

         
...when I realize I'll be with these darlings for 8 more months...

NOVEMBER

                     
...when I have five Special Ed. meetings, report cards due, and my first required observation all in the same week.

DECEMBER

...when all my students passed their Math Benchmark and I ROCKED my observation.

JANUARY

                            
...when I REALLY wanted that snow day....but didn't get it.

FEBRUARY

...when my students get me enough chocolate for Valentine's Day to feed the Russian Army.

MARCH

                                   
...when half my class STILL can't remember to put names on their papers. Or periods at the end of their sentences.

APRIL

                                    
...when New York announces yet another change to the state assessments.

MAY

  
...when I have to interrupt my lesson to answer the phone AGAIN.

JUNE


...when it's the last day of school!!

So...which month can you relate to?  :-D

    1. Hi Alison! Thanks for stopping by! The phone ringing multiple times would always set me off this year - I would look WAY too much like Conan up there. :-)
